Location:   Virtual (Zoom) 

Date & Time: February 26, 2021, 10:00am – 3:00pm (suggested arrival by 9:55)

The inaugural Early Career Researcher Day was the first event of its kind in Manitoba. This year, universities from throughout Manitoba will again bring emerging researchers together with experienced grant writers and funding experts, where, together, they will interactively explore the research lifecycle. This year’s event is spearheaded by The University of Winnipeg in partnership with the University of Manitoba, Canadian Mennonite University, and Brandon University.

Experts from The University of Winnipeg, University of Manitoba, Mitacs, and Research Manitoba, among others, will participate in info sessions, panels, and workshops, to provide information and support attendees throughout the day. Attendees will jointly develop original research project ideas in order to engage with the entire research lifecycle.

The event presents a unique opportunity for early career researchers to:

  • Develop new partnerships 
  • Workshop a project idea with the support of experts
  • Think beyond creating good ideas: create a concrete proposal that conveys   competence and feasibility
  • Hear directly from other researchers about the challenges of conducting research in a global pandemic

Please note: 

  • Anyone who considers themselves an Early Career Researcher or who is interested in  participating is welcome to attend
  • Participants who cannot attend the full day are encouraged to RSVP for the morning or afternoon session alone
